For the Epiphone 1961 Les Paul SG Standard, Gibson USA provides two BurstBucker humbuckers familiar from the high-quality Gibson line-up. The two dual coils are classic replicas of the legendary PAF humbuckers and rely on Alnico II magnets to add warmth to the sonic character of both humbuckers. Both pickups are controlled by high-quality CTS potentiometers with genuine Mallory capacitors, while the US-made Switchcraft output jack ensures reliable and first-class signal transmission.
